Hi Zimmi,
my congrats for such a nice He 177 model!

You achieved truly amazing results! What a mess of work with all those small Photo etched parts! Looks great.
The paint
I was thinking the contour of the nose cone would looks quiet better than presented on the the 48 scale model?
Thumbs up, mate!

thnx guys
the only downthing in this box is the glasshouse....Revell should think about new moulds for it when they ever rerelease the kit...with nowadays moulding capacities it should be able to produce a high standard canopy
13. December 2013, 10:54

I agree with you! The only lack in several Revell kits is their canopies!

Hey Zimmi!

You´ve choosen a beautiful and very nice to build kit! But i fear that there is not much to see from the cockpit when the canopy is attached. I had to decide myself, if i want to build the kit with pe´s and i rejected because its no more visible if finished...

But anyway, have fun and provide us a lot of pictures!;)

5. September 2012, 16:03
Wilfried Bogaerts
Yep, Flying Zippo isn't a nickname to be proud of. Basically this is a 4 engined aeroplane, each nacelle contains 2 engines coupled to drive 1 prop. This solution caused overheating with a nice campfire as a pesky side effect :)

Had nothing to do with the dive-bomb requirement.
The basic engines were never really designed to be run in couples feeding a common gearbox and propeller. The inevitable result of high stress and vibration is leaks, cracks and fractures spewing parts and combustible liquids all over the place. This was a good recipe for disaster on may other airplane types.
6. September 2012, 06:09
Holger Kranich
But nevertheless, its a beautiful aircraft, i have a soft spot for it. Especially the A6 version!
6. September 2012, 06:23
Holger Kranich
And the kit is real fun to build! You just have to take care with the gear and the right angles of it!
6. September 2012, 06:24

Very beautiful indeed, and when i build it i would try to make it justice, even because it was a gift and i would like to dedicate the build to the friend that ofered it to me.

How does this kit look? I'm thinking I may get it myself.

This is a hell of a great kit! It fit´s perfect, the decals are great and the Hs-293 is a model itself!

It is a very good kit indeed. Not the easiest to make in 1/72 mind you... but it looks great in the display.

My son crashed the first one, but i buyed a second one! I´m not sure when i have time to build it again...

Personally I think this is as difficult to built, as was to fly the real thing! Especially the landing gear is a nightmare due to the various angles involved. Take your time you go to it. The finished model is very pleasing to the eye.

The only thing that wouldn´t fit was the front-canopy. the rest fell together. But yes, take time for the gear!
